Associate Medical Illustrator
Benjamin M. Brown, MSMI, is a graduate of Augusta University where he specialized in animation and virtual reality. His prior commitments to service in medicine included volunteering as a member of the VA Medical Reserve Corps, being named Red Cross volunteer of the year, and contributions as a Rotarian. In his travels throughout the world he also assisted service missions or research in El Salvador, Honduras, Ecuador, and China. He found a way to marry his medical and artistic interests during his tour of service in the Dominic Republic with the Peace Corps. There he used artistically rendered medical concepts to educate children and young mothers on preventative health practices, and in so doing, solidified his opus for medical illustration and animation.
